Lots to do & see. Big play areas, lake boating, overpriced icecream van, not enought toilets, but beautifully cared for, and bird park nice. Often bouncy castles there (although the man is rude!)

I've been a few times with my 2 young sons and we've always had a great time. There's something for everyone; beautiful rose gardens, a boating lake, lovely parkland, animals and 2 fabulous play parks. There's 1 for younger children with baby swings, climbing frames, tunnel, etc and another for the older children with a big climbing frame, swings, etc.... More

I think the park keepers form Newcastle should take a trip across the water and see what can be done with a park. Well worth a visit and the cheesy chips were lush
